Corruption and greed are at the root of environmental crimes and climate change. The catastrophic weather events of the recent years are a looming warning of what is to come.
From undue influence of the fossil fuel industry over climate policy development to misspending in climate finance projects and from corruption in the management of land to over consumption and waste in developed economies, if greed and corruption are not fought decisively, the environmental catastrophe awaiting us will only grow.
To address this global risk, the 21st IACC invites experts, advocates, and defenders to assess our successes and challenges to date. We aim to outline key areas of action, and advocacy, for the following years for our global movement to take up.
